Whitefriars Christmas Paperweights 1979 and 1980
« on: February 25, 2013, 06:59:10 PM »
Here are 2 paperweights I just bought. Whitefriars 1979 Partridge in a Pear Tree and Whitefriars 1980 Bells Christmas Paperweights.
Both in mint condition with original box and certificates, $440 and $430 respectively.  I think I did good..

about right for the partridge, very good value for the bell - which is much rarer than the partridge as 1980 was when Whitefriars closed and so not that many christmas weights were made that year.

I just love the detail in the Patridge in a pear tree one.. I don't know how many canes are there but it is just beautiful.
Does anyone know exactly how many of them were made of 1979 and 1980 one??? I know they intended to make 1000 of each but I think it is around 200-300 of each???

I wish I could have the one without the partridge but I think My husband will be a little mad if I talk about another paperweight..    :)
